The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will also host the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

The locals simply call it the "G" but you cannot be inspired by visiting Australia's greatest sports stadium while you're in Melbourne. With a capacity of 100,000 seats - this stadium is truly magical. As soon as you enter the arena - you can feel it's magic. Daily tours operate of the MCG, and the souvenir shop and museum is...

The holy grail of sporting grounds in Australia. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was fantastic to see so much that you would normally not get to see. Loved every bit of the tour.

All sports lovers should visit the "G" at least once in their lifetime! The atmosphere on game day is electric (especially with an AFL game) and the history and quality of the facilities makes any visit a special occasion. Even if no match is being played, just being in the surrounds of such a well cared for and iconic sports... More

Even if your not a cricket fan this place is spectacular. We did the tour and the sports museum. Tour guides are excellent and it's the only way you'll get to see behind the scenes but these are kept to small groups. The sports museum was excellent and there is something for everyone, for me it was the Olympics especially... More

I hadn't really expected to enjoy the tour of the MCG, although I love cricket and AFL football. My husband was very keen, and I'm glad I went with him. Watching sport on television from the MCG had not prepared me for the enormity of the building. I was impressed by the view from the top, the glimpse of what... More

Totally amazing experience. A must visit if you are in Melbourne and a cricket buff. Starting from the ground, to the dressing rooms, media center- it's just an amazing journey. The guides are all ex cricketers who have played in some part of their life whether at county or state levels. Overall an enriching experience.

Mecca! Or at least one of the Meccas for cricket lovers the world over, even a Pommie one :) I have always wanted to see a boxing day Ashes Test there, but that will have to wait to another lucky day. I arrived in Australia on the day of the cricket world cup final at the MCG, but knew for... More

The visit was incredible!! Mr. Noel (member) was our voluntary guide. He took pleasure in taking us to explore the stadium. Thanks a ton to him. Further, MCG visit is a great experience and a must do i think. My rating- 10/10 definitely i would do it again 😉😊
